    Magnificent half-timbered buildings and medieval
    alleys, vineyards blessed with plenty of sunshine
    and excellent wines, rich history and entertaining
    guided city tours, great museums and the smallest
    theatre in the world, a wide variety of events
    and beautiful cycleways and trails, “Häckerwirtschaften”
    (seasonal winetaverns) and sophisticated
    gastronomy, charming small shops – all this
    and much more can be expected here.
    The town’s first documentary reference dates
    from 1237. So it can look back on an eventful
    history. Its favourable position on the old trade
    route Nürnberg – Frankfurt made it possible for
    Miltenberg to experience times of economic prosperity
    at an early stage.

    “Gasthaus zum Riesen”, the oldest inn for aristocracy
    in Germany, “Schwarzviertel”, the oldest
